A few weeks ago, I told you Momma’s and Momma’s to be about the list of basic meds you need in your medicine cabinet that we received at Prenatal classes from a registered Nurse. Here is the list:

Pain and Fever : Pediatric Panado syrup or Calpol  OR Suppositories; Voltaren, Empaped or Viburcol

Everything that you might need in a Medicine Cabinet is right here! All you need is the meds. It is so easy to carry around and I have to say that I feel so much at ease knowing that I am prepared. I really hope that you will all find the above useful.

NB: I still remember the day my hubby and I went to Dischem Pharmacy to  get things from this list. It is soooooooo overwhelming as a new parent to be / parent. Do not let this list overwhelm you. We bought Panado Syrup; Telament drops; Flo Baby; Nose Frida; Digital Thermometer; Aloe Vera Gel; Calpol, Prospan and Baby Vicks. If Hudson shows any symptoms of the above I have this list to refer to and to get meds, IF there is not an urgent need to take him to the doctor.  Always follow YOUR intuition as a mom as a parent when it comes to the health of your baby.
